    Exclamation Giants Cap number (From John Clayton on ESPN) (Taken off BBI)

    Giants Cap number (From John Clayton on ESPN) I got a ring. He got one too. : 12:10 am


    According to Clayton, the GMEN are $4.7. million over the cap.

    Cowboys $18.2 million over
    Redskins $4 million over
    Eagles $5.2 million under.

    However...

    I'm not sure how the Giants can be over the cap right now considering they don't have 51 guys signed to contracts yet and Osi is expected to void the final year of his contract.

    I worked up a preliminary number (which I should add is fluid as some of the LTBEs that weren't earned should be getting credited back to this year's cap) and I had them at just a hair under the projected cap of $120.9M. But maybe I'm wrong, who knows?

    I bet they are including Osi salary for next year.

    I don't know what they're including or not including. I broke down every contract -- did hours of research to dig up the numbers. I'm not saying my numbers are spot on, but I do feel good about them
    ALL IN!!!!!!!!

    I'm ALL IN are you?

    Wait the Cowboys are 18.2 mill over and they don't even have Romo signed? LOL

    BTW, Osi's cap hit was spread across two years

    Osi is technically under contract next season. It is a voidable year that was put there to spread the cap hit.

    Giants need to release some veterans to have cap room to resign any of their FAs. They have some tough choices to make.

    Beatty is arguably the biggest resigning priority so I imagine they might consider releasing Diehl to make some room for that contract. Boley could be a consideration with the way they phased him out at the end of the season. KP is a great player when healthy but I'm not seeing the Giants caving in to his demands too much with our S depth. Marty B's contract will depend on how confident they feel with Robinson's development.

    They also need a little room for the inevitable draft selections we'll be picking up in April.

    That's a result of the fines they and the Redskins got last season.

    Cap numbers don't make any sense until after cuts and restructures.

    Didn't Eli's numbers go way up starting in the '13 season? That might have something to do with where the Giants are. Take a look at this:
